Well I don't mind having None instead of '', but I'm certainly in favour
of consistency. As long as empty ns uri always show up the same, this is
fine by me. I was assuming None was 'wrong' only because I had always seen
'' before (and all our code uses '').

I don't think I have write access on the PyXML cvs, since I'm not
registered as a developer on the project, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Narval (including a couple of kludges to work around bug #128860) with
todays cvs snapshot of 4Suite and PyXML, and this patch works fine, so I'd
say it works fine, as long as noone else is expecting None as a ns-uri.
